Abstract
This memorandum summarizes the three-fold Operational Research (OR) support provided to the Technology Demonstration Project entitled High Capacity Technical Communications Network (HCTCN), by the Defence Research and Development Canada Valcartier OR team. First, refinements were proposed to three basic measures of performances implemented in the Low Bandwidth Test Bed simulation environment developed for this project: location fidelity, currency and latency. Second chronologically, but the main effort of this study was to develop a tool that implements these refined measures. This tool, fully documented in this document, including a user’s guide, represents one of the key requirements for the successful analysis and delivery of the results obtained through experimentation by the HCTCN project team. Third, the memorandum also addresses the question of the number of times each scenario needs to be executed within the test bed in order to ensure statistically valid results.
